Maya del Mar's Daykeeper Journal: Astrology, Consciousness and Transformation
About Daykeeper Journal

Founder and Guiding Light

Maya del Mar
World-renowned astrologer Maya del Mar founded Daykeeper Journal online in September of 2000. Until her sudden passing in November of 2006, she single-handedly wrote almost the entirety of every single issue.

Maya combined nearly 40 years of astrological work with keen intuitive skills and a lifetime of teaching and counseling experience to provide her readers and clients with insightful and humanistic astrological guidance. Her presence is deeply missed.

Here at Daykeeper, she is in vividly alive in our hearts and minds as a shining beacon of inspiration as we carry on the caring, meticulous and adventurous spirit of her life's work.


Susan PomeroySusan Pomeroy, one of Maya's three daughters, received her doctorate in geography before becoming a writer and designer. She was webmaster of Daykeeper, and since her mother's passing, has assumed full editorship. She can be reached at

Nina BouskaNina Bouska and Maya del Mar became dedicated astrology students together about 40 years ago, and have met regularly with others from their first class ever since. While Maya went on to pursue astrology as a career, Nina still calls herself "an avid student" who does readings only for friends and family. (Clearly she is far too modest.)
